Hey,

Just bought Tim Dales new library and Unify Mac crashed changing patches in Unify's patch browser. I'm running Monterey 12.6.3 (Thanks to Apple cutting me off on updates). Just selecting new patches and boom. Attaching the Crash Code. I was using Standalone. O2 is 2.8.5e

Of course last time this happened I was inside Logic, this was a first for Standalone, but I rarely use O2 much anymore due to the fact that I like the speed on Native Unify patches. But I liked several of the patches in Tim's library and $20 is cheap for that many patches.

@pbeprod Thank you for the report, and I'm sorry you're struggling with this. I'm pretty sure it's a bug in Omnisphere itself, and furthermore I'm pretty sure it's specific to the Mac.

John has also experienced these crashes. There's something about the new Tim Dale library that seems to trigger them. I've passed on your crash report to our contact at Spectrasonics. Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this soon.


Question: Do you have Unify set up to reuse instances of Spectrasonics plug-ins (see https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual-1.9/doku.php?id=layer-reuse)? This has been standard in Unify installs for quite some time, but you've been a Unify user (and patient beta-tester) for so long, you might have an older setup. If you'd like to help debug this, it would be great if you could edit the ~/Library/Application Support/PlugInGuru/PluginRules-Unify/ReuseAcceptRules.xml file, removing the line

<PluginRule vendor="Spectrasonics"/>

entirely. Do this only while no instances of Unify are running. Then run Unify again and click through the patches in Tim's library. You'll probably notice that patches load a bit more slowly, but what I need to know is: does it ever still crash? If it seems the crashes are completely gone, this could be an important clue which I'd like to pass on to Spectrasonics.

I have had a few crashes as well but it is very rare for me. Not every time. Usually after I've loaded a few patches so memory seems full of data I'm guessing... sorry to hear this is happening for you as well. We've let Spectrasonics know about this, hopefully they'll dive in and find a fix!

Hey would it be weird if there wasn't a Pluginguru folder showing up at the ~/Library/Application Support/PlugInGuru location? I tried doing a search of the "Mac Library Directory, as well as my Macintosh HD, but I've found Mac finder searches wanting. I tried searching for "ReuseAcceptRules.xml" but doesn't seem to want to search for anything. Could it be somewhere else? This wouldn't be due to me moving my "Pluginguru" folder to an external hard drive? Up until now dealing with this new O2 library has been the only crashes I've had in a while. I was able to change patches for a while, didn't want you to think it was every time, but figured you would want to know.

Thanks!

That would be weird and Unify actually probably would not run. Do this, in the Mac finder when you see a menu option that says "Go" - Click the menu so you see the list of folders you can directly Go to. Now, hold down the option key on your computer keyboard and "Library" will magically show up under the "Home" option - select "Library" after if shows up and that will take you into your user/Library folder. INSIDE there you should find the PlugInGuru folder with a "PlugInRules-Unify" folder and 2 files, one for ReuseAcceptRules and one for ReuseDenyRules.

 

If this folder doesn't exist, let us know. I believe doing a full install of Unify will rebuild this but Shane will know and probably confirm or correct me.

Are you looking under the system-wide Library folder /Library, or your own user-account's Library folder ~/Library? The latter is where you need to look; sorry if I didn't make that clear.

In the ~/Library/Application Support/PlugInGuru folder, you should see the PluginRules-Unify subfolder, and files PluginList.xml and Unify.settings (and possibly one or two other files). If you don't see those, you're probably looking in the wrong folder.

@getdunne I was just clicking the library directory, showing under my Macintosh HD, but going from the GO menu in the finder evidently brings up the correct library folder as John was telling me above. I removed the line for O2 and saved, I'll play around see how it goes. Thanks

Yes, that's the system-wide library. Sorry if I misled you, and I'm glad John's instructions were more helpful. I look forward to hearing more about your experience after making this change. Thanks for your patience and help with this!
